I just did this with someone who posted their call letters. You are right and that is wicked!

I am going to make this part of my "to do" list for next week. I have enjoyed just listening. I bought a BAOFENG UV-5R VHF/UHF Dual Two Way Ham Radio Transceiver Walkie Talkie New. I also bought an external antenna and it seems to work pretty well.

Re: A Ham Radio Sub-Forum?

I just bought a hand held HAM radio to put in my travel/get home bag in case of emergencys. I know I can talk on it (unless there is an emergency), but I can listen to it and so now I am intrigued and would like to learn more about this. I understand to get a license there is a test involved? How much money (not counting equipment) does it take to get started and can someone give me a few of the benefits for having a license?

Thanks,
Carl
